National Sandcastle Competition

Event Date: 7th July 2019, 10:00

Event Category: Show/Festival/Event

Location: Westward Ho!

The North Devon Hospice National Sandcastle Competition has sat dormant for a few years now….Westward Ho! has an amazing beach for this, we have some spirited builders here and access to the old construction crews from the past events. The Hospice is a wonderful cause, it’s about time it came back in 2019!

There will be the National Sandcastle Competition and a seperate Junior/Kids competition too. It will be held in front of the slip way/promenade under the Fairway Buoy and will be visible from all around the village. Event HQ will be on the upper floor of the Fairway Buoy. There will be live entertainment throughout the day to keep the constructors spirits high in true Westward Ho! style.
